Check out this rad little ’80s-inspired green screen short with the always inspiring Coco Young directed by the mulit-mulit-multitalented Tracy Antonopoulos. I am honestly a bit surprised (and accordingly very grateful to Tracy) that I even made it in the final cut, as I had to prematurely dart from the set due to a massive snowstorm and the consequent confusion over travel logistics!

It was such a pleasure to hop to Frock NYC in NoLita this past January with the brilliant vintage maestro Natalie Joos!
Also, while you are dropping by her acclaimed Tales of Endearment blog — featuring profiles on many fascinating personalities playing with the most ravishing of vintage wares — be sure to peruse her adventures with my dear friends Emily Weiss (of Into the Gloss), Hanneli Mustaparta and Tali Lennox to boot.
